International student's transfer journey from Cochise College to ASU
ASU transfer student Paulette Iniguez Erunez is the first in her family to not only study outside of her home country of Mexico, but also the first to continue her studies in pursuit of her bachelor’s degree. As an international student, Paulette decided the best way to transition into postsecondary education was to begin at a community college because of the proximity to her family, the financial savings it afforded her parents, and the scholarship opportunities offered, so Paulette began her educational journey at Cochise College.
Inspired by her dreams of working in both the medical as well as the engineering field, Paulette sought to merge these two passions as a means to give back to the community, serving people of lower incomes in rural areas. “My grandparents live in a rural area and there are many people experiencing poor living conditions. Most of them cannot afford attending a hospital or traveling to a big city for medical attention. My grandfather has been my greatest inspiration to continue pursuing my bachelor’s degree.” During her senior year of high school, Paulette further learned about the field of medicine and bioengineering, which is when she decided to pursue a career in biomedical engineering in the United States.
When asked why she chose ASU, Paulette states “I chose ASU because it offered me some great scholarships and the opportunity of keeping the ones I had earned during community college. The engineering program for my specific major was of great interest to me and I loved the decision of transferring to this awesome campus.” Paulette will be completing her BSE in the Fulton Schools of Engineering biomedical engineering program in May 2022.
